ICC Champions Trophy: Dinesh Karthik looks to exploit England conditions

Group A comprises New Zealand, Australia, England and Bangladesh.

Pakistani fans, based in United Kingdom, have once against prepared a double-decker bus to celebrate Pakistan's campaign in ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in the UK.

India were resounding 240-run winners after seam duo Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav reduced Bangladesh to 22-6 in their final warm-up match for the ICC Champions Trophy.

Jason Roy is the one under pressure, having failed with the bat in recent times, but Morgan was pretty emphatic about the fact that his first-choice opener will remain just that - first choice for the rest of the tournament.

Hassan, who has represented Pakistan in 16 ODIs, said that he has played matches against big teams like Australia and England, which boosted his confidence. "We'll try to live up to those expectations".

I even liked the Champions Trophy, because it had a better looking trophy than the World Cup and whatever that monstrosity it is that they hand out when you win the World T20.

When questioned who will win, Laxman was quick to voice his support for India, who have come out on top against Pakistan in their last three meetings at the 2015 World Cup, 2016 Asia Cup and last year's World Twenty20.

There was something very special about Hasan Ali's appearance against England in the summer of 2016.

But Mortaza said Bangladesh had it in them to spring a surprise.

Elsewhere, Sri Lanka suffered defeat in their second warm-up game prior when they couldn't defend a massive 356 runs on the board against New Zealand.

Rubel Hossain was the most successful bowler for Bangladesh, bagging three wickets, while Sunzamul Islam claimed two.

Ahead of the big-ticket game, he further said: "No global game comes easy to you, you have to work hard for it and it will be the same against India". "So whatever we do first against England, we need to start well and that's what we are focusing on".

India are placed in Group B along with Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lanka, and will start their campaign on June 4 against their arch-rivals at Edgbaston.

"There has been nothing put in place and in the end, the players want games with context and, most importantly, the fans want games with context and I don't understand why the ICC is taking so long to be able to put these things in place".
